Magazine Art: Art, Film, Book, Movie, and Magazine Ads

Art prints have been around as long as printing has been around. Film, movies, cinema, as an art that moves, only a short time, but fully the memory of living humans. Books and magazines have been the subject of ads as long as the memory of humankind. Or so it would seem. Not only did magazines run ads for themselves and for other titles from the same publisher, they often ran ads for totally unconnected magazine titles. Sometimes they sold the space to the other publisher, and sometimes they simply exchanged space for ads in the other publisher's magazines. In addition, some magazine distributors and resellers ran combination ads in which one might subscribe to any number of magazines at a discounted price. Often they advertised art prints of their previously issued covers, and a number of companies built a business on providing art prints of all types.

Here's an easy way to pay for your summer vacation: sell subscriptions to GOOD HOUSEKEEPING. As advertised in the magazine itself. Hmm, 1931 was a bad year for every business. Mrs. Dan Morris of Oklahoma has found profit, renewed health, a vivid interest in others, romance, and adventure. Wonder if Mr. Dan knows about the romance and adventure.

Upton Sinclair would like to understand why he writes his books. And he would like you to buy his new book, "Mammonart." Or buy any of his other books, all of them available from Sinclair, himself. In fact, he pioneered a form of self-publishing in which a trade publisher put his books out for the general market, and he put out his own edition of the same book, often at a lower price. Smart. Some day the website UptonSinclair.org will have some content. This ad was published in the...

Get your friends, and their friends, to subscribe, and you'll collect CREDITS that can be exchanged for all the parts you need to build a radio such as the Cockaday designs. At 2000 to 3000 CREDITS per radio, this works out to about 40 to 60 one-year subscriptions. You'd better have a lot of friends interested in radio.

By 1922 radio was changing from an avocation of experimenters and techno-geeks to something everyone wanted to have in their homes. The availability of commercially made complete radio receiving sets (or systems) made the changeover possible. Here RCA does its part to make radio something everyone wants. Compare the cover shown here with the back cover of the Sears radio catalog from about this time. This book, Radio Enters the Home, has been reprinted for collectors.
